Thanks, really interesting . Whatever we think of Cream now, I think it is important to realize how blown away musicians were, as Jerry is here, and how much that would inspire much of the music we like .
The Hendrix thing is echoed elsewhere (I think in a 67 interview with Clapton himself) . I think Hendrix was growing as a player, and so was the "Experience" as a group , no doubt with Cream in mind . I think the Hendrix on stage "Come-on", made some musicians undervalue him as a musician , in 67 .
A year or 2 later, different story .

I have a vague memory of Clapton being given a 'Best Guitarist of the Year', and saying 'This should have gone to Jimi'.

I go through phases with Clapton. If I listen to him too much I have to put him back in the box for a while. Then when I do play him again I'm reminded of why I liked him in the first place.
